What do you prefer out of the two burners. My favorite are the wick type burners as I can control the heat easier and a lot safer.. Very Happy

Both have their adherents, wick is a little fussier but controllable using blanks over the wick tubes to control the flame. Vapourising is more convenient and safer.
